Day 7: Got off at about 8:50. We headed east along the north coast of PEI. We went through PEI NP. It had interesting beaches and a couple of lighthouses. There are a bunch of “very unique” lighthouses on PEI that all look exactly the same, well, almost the same, one had an octagonal foot print while all the rest had square footprints. There are LOTS blue mussel aqua culture arrays in the bays. They hang a “mussel sock” from a bouy and set them up in long lines. The mussels attach to the sock and the “mussel men” then harvest them. Kerry drove about 200 miles today, and we never left the Island. Sure was glad that we took sandwiches along, because there were almost NO places where we could have bought lunch!. The weather was glorious today, bright and sunny, cool and breezy. We had spectacular sunset this evening - - only took about three dozen photos. Tomorrow we head to Spencer Island, Nova Scotia.
